The article discusses a bar in Tyler, TX that has been charged with overserving a man who was involved in a deadly car crash. The bar is accused of serving the man alcohol even though he was already intoxicated. The man ended up crashing his car and killing two people. The bar could face punitive damages and may have to pay the families of the victims.
According to police, Charles was driving a black Chevy Silverado, which struck the rear of a white Dodge Ram driven by 17 year old Lillian Dawn Thornburgh, a Tyler Legacy high school senior on the night of Jan. 14th. Thornburgh’s car hit a curb and flipped into the front yard of a residence. She was pinned in the cab of the truck as the cab mostly collapsed. Both were taken to UT Health by EMS.
Police later collected three receipts from the Rose City Draft House showing the drinks he purchased included Crown Royal. The ABC code states that the business must not operate in a place or manner that endangers public safety and TABC plans on pursuing administrative charges for sale of alcoholic beverage to an intoxicated person and violations of the Alcoholic Beverage Code.
This is a tragic story and serves as a reminder of the dangers of overserving alcohol. Bars and restaurants need to be careful when serving alcohol to customers. They need to make sure that they are not serving someone who is already intoxicated. If they do, they could be held liable if that person ends up harming someone.
